Built By Dimmick Drake in 1906, Castle Inn was the last of the great hotels to be built in Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania. Tourists flocked to the Gap to escape the summer heat and enjoy the beauty of the Delaware River.
Designed by German architect Robert Brueckner, Castle Inn was constructed of poured concrete and timber beams, a European construction technique unusual in the United States at the time. The Castle boasted all the latest amenities such as an ice cream parlor, “1600 electric lights, mosaic floor and running spring water in every room… bowling alleys, pool and billiard parlor.”
Enrico Caruso sang at Castle Inn and John Phillip Sousa performed there. Gene Tunney, who defeated Jack Dempsey in 1926 for the heavyweight championship of the world, trained at Castle Inn in 1927 for the controversial “long count” fight in which he successfully defended his title against Dempsey.
Castle Inn continued to function as an Inn until 1952, when it was purchased by Big Band leader Fred Waring, of Waring and the Pennsylvanians, and Waring Blender fame. Mr. Waring ran his music empire from the site.
In 2005, Castle Inn was purchased by Theresa Veltri and Frank Paccione, who, through their loving restoration of the building, have preserved and protected this wonderful part of American History.
Today, Castle Inn is home to a colonnade of unique shoppes including an antiques auction house, a day spa and victorian era ice cream parlour. The latest addition includes the newly restored event space.
